    Hello, I am currently applying to USNA and USAFA. As a backup plan I am applying for NROTC and AFROTC scholarships. I want to major in physics (Astrophysics would be great).

    My questions are:
    A) What schools offer both good physics programs and ROTC (Especially NROTC), and
    B) What are my chances of getting a full scholarship in this field?

    Thanks!

    NROTC site list of colleges

    There are only 60+ colleges offering NROTC (look at the website), and while physics is a pretty generic major (like biology and chemistry), I would think the following would have good physics programs: MIT, Harvard, Tufts, RPI, WU-SL, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, UCLA, UB-Berkeley, Standford, Penn, Duke, UNC-CH, UVa, NW. The "ride" is the same in NROTC regardless of school, unless the school kicks in $ for R&B.
